ALBANY, N.Y. (AP)"Michael Vick has a place on a minor league football team if he can get reinstated by the NFL.
The Albany Firebirds, an arenafootball2 franchise, have offered the 28-year-old quarterback a one-year contract at the league standard: $200 a week plus a $50 bonus for a win.
Vick quarterbacked the Atlanta Falcons for six seasons before being convicted of bankrolling an interstate dog fighting business.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has not said if he will lift Vick’s suspension after he completes a 23-month prison sentence. Vick goes from federal prison to home confinement next month.
The Firebirds’ contract offer requires that Vick donate $100,000 to a local humane society.
A call to Vick’s agent was not immediately returned.
I just watched an episode on Dogtown where they were starting to rehab the dogs rescued from his facility.
$200/year is too much for him.
mr vick is no longer residing in Kansas...
(think he will miss Leavenworth?)
